fantasy premier league clean sheet tips GW16

cleansheets2

I’m continuing  our fantasy premier league clean sheet tips GW16 article.  Here we rank the clean sheet prospects for each team in GW15 by comparing each teams defence in gameweek 16 compared to the attacking rank of the opponent.  Both attack and defence ranking use a mixture of actual and underlying stats.  We also give you one of the bookies odds for clean sheets and rank them in order to give you another view.  I hope you find it interesting and useful in deciding the lineup for your team.

fantasy premier league clean sheet tips GW16

Firstly here’s the Fixtures

fpl..gw16fixtures

We go through each team by the clean sheet rank I’ve given them.  We calculated that in a very basic way.  We’ve compared the rank of the teams defence vs the rank of the opponents attack.  As I said it’s a bit basic and it doesn’t differentiate between home and away or recent circumstances.  Thats why we’ve put the clean sheet odds for GW16 of one bookie as another point of reference. We’ve also given you the rank of those odds for each of the teams.  The clean sheet odds are the amount won for £1 invested.  The odds are of Wednesday when I wrote the article.  Hope thats clear.  In ranking the bookies, if the odds are the same for 2 or more teams, I’ve followed my ranking.

Comment

Hope you found that useful.  Again reasonable correlation between my ranking and the bookies odds this week.  Doesn’t seem such a good weekend for clean sheets with only 2 under £2.00.  However taking 9 places to go to £3.00 seems ok.   Last week was a good weekend for clean sheets with 7 to Stoke, Man Utd, West Ham, Leicester, Watford, Bournemouth and Newcastle.  Interestingly I got 3 in my top 10 and the bookies only 1.

Looking at the outliers from the bookies odds where my rank and theirs is different by 5 ranks or over.  There are 4

The bookies are favouring Crystal Palace in their game home to Southampton more than me.  They also favour Chelsea in their away game to Leicester more than me.  I’ll take both of those on.

In reverse I favour Leicester more than the bookies.  I also favour WBA more than the bookies in their away game to Liverpool.  Both of Chelsea and Liverpool have European games and couldn’t score last week against Bournemouth and Newcastle respectively so again I’ll take that on.

Last week my ranking I gave higher chances toBournemouth and Leicester for clean sheets and comprehensively won that battle.

Just a reminder as you can see from the odds that it’s very difficult to predict clean sheets and often there are only 5 or so clean sheets out of 20 teams playing so it’s not a silver bullet.

By the way it’s worth noting that Man Utd have a number of injury issues in defence and it looks like Man City wont have Kompany which has been a real issue for them. This may see a decline in the odds over both in the next couple of days .

Good luck with your selections

    Without Coquelin, don’t you think Arsenal have less chances of keeping cleansheet?

  • AZ

    My five defenders match up to the top 5 ranked teams this week (Bellerin, Moreno, Kolarov, Alderweireld, Nyom). Difficult to pick 3 from them!

  • Sean Strang

    I need to get rid of Sturridge and Begovic
    My team is Begovic, (McCarthy)
    Wollscheid, Monreal ,Moreno, (Simpson, targett)
    Özil, De bruyne, Hazard, Mahrez(Surman)
    Vardy, Lukaku, Sturridge.
    Any suggestions?
    Was thinking maybe Kane and Courtios

  • Sean Strang

    Also just have enough to get Agüero but kane at home to Newcastle is too tempting
